BWW Reviews: 5th Avenue's A CHORUS LINE Is Almost a Triple ThreatBWW Reviews: 5th Avenue's A CHORUS LINE Is Almost a Triple Threat
by Jay Irwin - Sep 12, 2014

There's something to be said for seeing a company of incredible dancers performing the classic A Chorus Line especially when they're doing much of the original Michael Bennett choreography as is currently being presented at the 5th Avenue Theatre. Even better when you've got an entire company of incredible singers as well. You've almost got the triple threat that the show needs to be great. Unfortunately it's that third element, the acting, where the 5th Avenue's production falls a little short and so the story of these Broadway gypsies suffers a bit. (more...)

The 5th is also pleased to welcome back Los Angeles triple-threat Chryssie Whitehead in the role of Cassie.

Allen Fitzpatrick, Laura Griffith & More to Lead 5th Avenue Theatre's SPAMALOTAllen Fitzpatrick, Laura Griffith & More to Lead 5th Avenue Theatre's SPAMALOT
by BWW News Desk - Jan 7, 2014

King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are storming The 5th Avenue Theatre in Monty Python's Spamalot, the perfect musical to fight the winter blues. Based on the blockbuster 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, this hilarious musical comedy lays siege to Seattle featuring a stellar lineup of local talent including Joshua Carter, Allen Fitzpatrick, Richard Gray, Laura Griffith, Louis Hobson, Greg McCormick Allen, Matt Owen, and Dane Stokinger. Called "Fantastic! Gorgeously silly!" by The New York Post, Spamalot blends cerebral audacity with slapstick absurdity in this wacky version of King Arthur's mythical search for the Holy Grail. Bringing to the stage such classic Monty Python shticks as the Knights Who Say Ni, the killer rabbit, flying cows, and "Always Look on the Bright Side of Your Life," Spamalot is side-splitting fun.
